Ladies win in Division 3

In Round 3 of the Winter League, Ladies’ 1 had an emphatic 3-1 victory over bottom of the table Bucklebury to put themselves 3rd in Division 3 with 4 matches remaining.  Lorraine Fowler & Tine Stern had a 6-4 6-2 win in the first round over a strong visiting pair Emma Spriggs & Trish Strang and, with Ravinder Norman & Jenny Sheppard winning 6-2 7-5 against Della Elford & Jane Holloway, a victory looked likely at the halfway point.  Fowler & Stern continued their good form winning 6-2 6-0 against Elford & Strang to secure the 3 points but Norman & Sheppard were unable to make it a clean sweep, sharing the sets and just losing the deciding tie-break against Spriggs & Strang.

The match between Ladies 2 and Caversham Park 2 in Division 6 was postponed because Caversham Park couldn’t raise a team.
